Tmoney99 (14276) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Bottle from Party Source. Poured clear amber with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate grassy hop aroma. Medium body with lively carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle: Fiery Golden, moderate white foamy head, so-so lacing, light carbonation.   Pale malt nose, soft grass and hay.   Very minor sweetness.   Not as sweet on the tongue as I would have thought.   Otherwise grassy, some hay/straw, with a minor barnish tinge.   Falls off on the backside.   Clean because there isn’t much there, slight lingering pale malt flavors.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit it does have a decent malt base giving it a little better than average body.   Tiz okay, but very forgetable as its quite plain.   Very non-offensive at least.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2007
The beer decamps the 500ml bottle a clear golden amber with a two-fingered creamy white head, the head settles slowly, leaving a thick sheet to cover the glass. Nose has a dominate malt sweetness, citrus crisp, start has a pleasant malt profile, slight hop bite at the back, top moderate in feel. Finish has modest acidity, the hop delectably spicy, quite dry and a smooth drinking beer, cannot say “Pilsners” are my favorites, but a good ones like this is always a pleasure to sample.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle. Nice beautiful bright color. Aroma of noble hop with notes of pepper. Nice white head with good lacing. Decent body with mild sweetness followed by earthy hop note in the finish. Not bad for an Euro import that may be dated.

Radek Kliber (7301) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 4, 2007
Bottle 500 ml
Rated as Bright Lager
Appearance :Deep golden lager with large thick and dense top, good lace shown.
Nose : Soft meadow flowers with mineral hints of bohemian hops, light fruity peach like over note.
Flavour/Palate : Golden clean malt base , soft silky like texture . Light gently sourness with soft yet well presented hop touch. Fairly delicate substance , sweet helles like base with Zatec hop profile . Refreshing and tasty, perhaps a bit to light even for such style.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Pours a transparent lightly effervescent golden with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of semi-sweet pale malt with a decent balance of fresh, grassy Saaz hops. Body starts with a pleasant mild pale malty sweetness along with some earthy bittering hops towad a crisp, very drinkable finish. A decent pils.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Bottle, pours a sparkling yellow with a white head. Taste is of some lighter malts, a bit of hops, nothing very domininate in the aroma or taste. It was an ok brew and a dissapointing pilsner.

dwyerpg (6013) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Really not much aroma but looks nice. Flavor has a good dryness up front. Finishes a little fruity and funky, not really the best. Still, decent stuff. I think the funk is some butter notes coming through.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of florals, light perfume, and some lemon. Flavor of light herbs, corn, and some butter. A clean, crisp bohemian pilsener.

Ernest (7625) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, husks, bread), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A fairly simple, husky example. Not impressed.
